POSTED ON 16 May, 2019

This section shows the details of the Activation Certificate for Zevenet Enterprise Edition. In the first section, you can see the credentials required by Zevenet team to generate the Activation Certificate. Notice that certificates are linked with the hostname.

  • Certificate Key. It is an encrypted string generate by your system, unique and necessary to generate the activation certificate. If the certificate is generated with another certificate Key, this will not be valid for your system.
  • Hostname. It is the unique nickname that is given to your load balancer.
  • You are able to copy both values with the double paper button.

In the next section shows the content of the activation certificate as follows:

         The Validity section indicates:

  • Not Before. Date and time when the certificate was issued.
  • Not After. Date and time until the certificate is valid. Note that after this date the appliance will continue working perfectly if it’s more or equal than 1 year, only a warning will appear. Less than 1 year is considered as temporary activation certificate and the appliance will stop after this date and time.
  • Subject. Content shows the following fields:
    • O. Organization that the activation certificate has been issued to.
    • OU / Key generated by the appliance instance and used in activation certificate.
